BIOGRAPHY

My interest in nursing is divided between my passion for critical care  and my love for teaching.  I feel fulfilled by knowing that I made a difference in someone’s life.
I have hematology oncology/bone marrow transplant, trauma/neuro/surgical ICU, Emergency and CCU background as an RN.  I was also a Family Nurse Practitioner in a private medical practice in a small town outside Zion National Park called Hurricane, Utah.
I am currently working in the CCU at KGH and as a Shift Coordinator at VJH in my “spare” time.
I have taught at colleges in the US and Canada; LPNs, Diploma RNs, Bachelors and Masters nurses, including NPs.

“Success is making a difference in the lives of others.  Happiness is watching them grow because of it – Make a difference”.
